Moment of truth...

Thanks to all 29 of you who wanted a shot at winning my give away bag. I truly enjoyed reading all your comments and the amazing things you had as your favourite sewn object(s). Christmas quilt from a mother. Sewing needle case. Paddington bear from Grandma. Shorts made by mother. Halloween costumes. Turtle pillows. Quilt from grandmother. A silk Roman shade. Needle holder and knitting bag. Tablecloths. A snow suit. A quilt for MIL. Amy Butler's Weekender Bag. Quilt for a daughter. Patchwork quilt from a great-great aunt. A quilt from grandma and mom. Tiny apron. A skirt. A tote bag. Baby blanket from grandmother. Quilt from grandmother. A communion dress. A stocking. Bedroom curtains. A hankie. A mat for the Christmas tree and a matching stocking.



Thank you all for sharing!



I put everyone's name on a piece of paper, folded them all nicely, shock them around in my hands and let a colleague help me draw a winner.



And the winner of the give away bag is *drumroll*

GEEK KNITTER and her Paddington Bear!!!



I'm really excited to ship my bag to her. I've visited the city she lives in and it makes me all giggly to think about my bag being walked around places where I've been. :)



I hope you'll like it, Geeky. :kram:







PS. And to those who didn't win... I thought this was a lot of fun and will probably host more give aways in the future. Trust me, I'll hold my thumbs for you then if you decide to enter the drawing.

Oh my goodness, I won? Me? I never win stuff! I just squeed so loud Joey had to come check on me. Wow, just wow. Thank you so much! How about if I take pictures of the bag around some of the local landmarks?
